Google Confirms Pixel 2 Launch Date: 4th October
Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are Google’s upcoming flagship smartphones. The phones will be unveiled at Google’s hardware event in October. The event is all set to take place in San Francisco, on the 4th of October at 9am PT.
The launch date of the Google Event was speculated to be the 5th of October, but the date has now been revealed by Google and it is actually the 4th of October. Interestingly, 4th of October is the same date when Google announced the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones last year.
Yesterday, Google began putting up Billboards announcing the event on 4th of October and today the website for the event has gone live too! Pixel 2 is less than a month away from its release. Google also released a video highlighting the problems their upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 smartphones would solve.
When you open the Google Event website you are greeted with a question mark which soon unscrambles into a ‘G’ Logo – with the text ‘Thinking about changing phones?’. This is a dead giveaway that Google is indeed launching their gen-next Pixel 2 Android smartphones at this event.
After Google asks you the question, you’re met with a screen that asks you to subscribe for more details. While the company has not directly stated that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will launch at this event, all these teasers are a dead giveaway that a new phone is coming.
Speculations also point out that along with the Pixel 2 smartphones, Google will also launch a new, smaller sized Google Home device, a new Chromebook Pixel laptop as well as new Google Headphones running the Google Assistant.
